Since its founding, Kyung Hee University has pursued the Kyung Hee Spirit of "Scholarship and Peace" as well as the founding principle of "creating a civilized world."

About

For the past 62 years, the University has developed remarkably, contributing to the fulfillment of a "cultural world for humanity" as the leader of the future of academics and the creator of common values for humanity. In particular, the past five years have witnessed notable growth and a rise in the University's stature through forward-looking and adventurous endeavors in education, research, public service, and praxis.

On its 60th anniversary in 2009, Kyung Hee University prepared for a second leap forward while seeking a new paradigm of future university development. It reflected on the fundamental mission of the University and established a new vision and goals for becoming a true university of the future. In this new vision for a university that transcends the traditional notion of the university as a mere physical location and the limitations of an exclusive academe, Kyung Hee University will rise to international prestige and develop into an international center of research, education, and praxis that brings together reality and imagination, the basics and applied sciences, and theory and practice. Pursuing "Global Eminence" on a foundation of academic excellence, Kyung Hee University will become an academic community that fulfills its social responsibility by cultivating world citizens with the capacity for communication and public service.

Services

Dowoomi (Korean Language Helpers)

Dowoomi is Korean for "helper" or "assistant." Through the Dowoomi program at the International Institute of Education, Korean student volunteers help international students at Kyung Hee study Korean and adjust to culture and life in Korea. The Dowoomi volunteers also benefit by gaining international experience as well as becoming good friends, Korean language teachers, and spokespersons to international students visiting Korea.

Center for Students with Disabilities

The Center for Students with Disabilities was established in October 2008 to reform public opinions about people with disabilities by expanding higher education opportunities, raising quality of life, and integrating students with disabilities and those without them. The Center for Students with Disabilities supports students by offering academic assistance, scholarships, dormitories, on-campus welfare programs, and consulting.

Kyung Hee Tutoring

The Kyung Hee Tutoring program is a small-scale, student-centered learning program that brings together a tutee in need of academic assistance with a tutor who has shown a record of academic excellence. The program is separated into three types: Lion Tutoring-which matches Korean tutors and tutees; Global Tutoring-which matches international students and Korean students; and Oral Communication Tutoring (OCT)-which matches students who wish to improve their speech and communication skills. The tutoring program not only helps students in their academics, communication, and speech abilities, but also helps them develop social skills.

Educational Center for International Students

To assist international students in adjusting to Kyung Hee University's educational system and improving academic ability prior to beginning regular coursework, the Educational Center for Foreign Students has been established at the Humanitas College. The Center posts announcements and useful information such as the webzine, e-books, online lectures, and academic affairs like course registration.

Student Life

IFCC (International Friendship & Culture Club)

The IFCC brings together Korean students and international students to build friendships and foster cultural exchange. Through participation in the IFCC, students can build an international network while gaining global experiences. Also, the exchanges that occur among IFCC's members increase a proper mutual understanding of culture.

Student Organizations

Joining a student organization takes up a significant part of university life in Korea. Students can share interests and hobbies while also building a broad personal network and gaining professional skills. By participating in these organizations in their free time, students can learn to be members of a society as they discover their own characters and skills. The main organizations are categorized into seven groups: performance, academic, service, athletics, religions, hobbies, and creative exhibition.

Cheering Squad

Kyung Hee University's cheering squad has its roots in the cheering division of the College of Physical Education but has expanded to the size and role it performs today. The cheering squad contributes to elevating Kyung Hee's image and brings members of the campus together at rallies, sports games, and various on- and off-campus events.
